Epic, sci-fi, amazing.
The transformation of Paul from a child to a religious/political symbol for a people was truly amazing.
I have never heard an audible book with different readers for different characters. I was blown away.
I couldn't stop listening to this book and as soon as I finished it this morning, I immediately started the next in the series - Dune Messiah.
If you enjoy sci-fi and love large engrossing worlds, you can't go wrong with Dune.
Dune is one of my favourite books and I was not dissapointed with the performance by the narrators in this audio book. I re-read this book every few years and I thought I'd try the audible version of it to keep me occupied during my commute. I am sure glad I did! This book is well worth the credit for how many hours it keeps you entertained - pick this one up and transport yourself to Dune!
Taking over the world, one page at a time.
I have enjoyed Dune, but this was a wonderful listening experience with an ensemble cast which made the listening a diverse experience.
The ensemble cast of many voices.
The voice narrator of Paul Atrides.
Gets interesting after 2 hours in to it.
Ender's game - top sci fi novels!
All the voices are well done!
No! 21 hours!!
The main narrator guy was great, but the swapping between the whole cast with effects to the more typical single narrator struck me as the same as watching a movie where it swapped between a sweded version. I just couldn't get past it.
I never read Dune and I thought the story was intriguing, but I am only moderately interested in reading on to know what happens next (in particular, with Alia). I would recommend reading the book over listening to this audio book as it took this audiobook to make me realize how much I value having a consistent voice (and pronunciation) for a book, let alone a series.
I was extremely impressed by this word perfect reading/performance of Dune.
The various voices, the slight use of sound effects, tone etc made this a great book to listen too.
Amazing value for a credit - It's a huge book which makes for many hours of enjoyable listening.
Be more consistent with what person is reading the lines for each character. Mostly it was the narrator reading the lines, and only sometimes were the other performers reading the dialogue of their character. This made following the story more difficult. Also, I didn't think he did a very good job with varying his voice to read the dialogue of the characters, especially the female characters.
Legendary Science Fiction
One of the best comes early-the gom jabbar!
Too many narrators
Dune: The Center of The Universe
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone. If you have seen the movie this will help fill in a lot of details.
The story is so captivating and interesting, really a great, worth the listen.
My only critique is at first I was a little confused, the book is narrated by different actors for different characters. But at other times the narrator voices the characters. It can be a bit confusing. Other than that, it's a really great book and the narration is really well done.
